>>> welcome to nhk world "newsline." japanese government officials say cruise on a chinese navy frigget trained their weapons radar on a japan self-defense destroyer. they say it happened in the island they both claim. first time they confirm china has done this to an sdf ship. gonodera just spoke about it. >> translator: using this so-called radar, weapons radar, is an extraordinary act. the japanese government believes that the situation could have gotten extremely dangerous. >> >> he says they laj aid protest with chi noose ministry. he revealed it happened on january 30th in international waters. he says the vessels were about three kilometers apart. he says defense ministry analysts are investigating a separate incident from earlier in january. they suspect a chinese navy frigget trained its weapons on a self-defense helicopter. japan and china have wenlocked in a dispute over the senkaku islands. china and taiwan claim the territory. the japanese government nationalized the islands last september. chinese surveillance ships have been navigating in and around or out of japa
exercise with the u.s. navy. the drills are being conducted off of south korea's east coast. we have more from seoul. it is an exercise that has been months in the planning. -- >> it is an exercise that has been months in the planning. a third nuclear test could lead the us and south korea to plan for a preemptive strike against the north in the future to prevent a nuclear missile launch. >> the us will have a nuclear submarine around the korean coast. the nuclear power can be deployed to korea. if the us and korea want, they will pre-empt, attack preemptively any time. >> they released footage of the president being briefed by security staff. >> north korea should pay the price for its provocation. we will recommend sanctions with practical effect. >> what was interesting was the wording, an explicit promise to carry out direct actions against north korea as part of the sanctions, a little more than a week after north korea said it would take strong, physical countermeasures against the south if it did so. it is very publicly responding to that challenge. from beijing, north korea's trad
. bonji ohara is a former navy captain with japan's self-defense forces. he says the chinese sent a clear message. >> it is a serious thing. if the radar is the fire-control radar, can control the weapon, usually a battlhipas that kind of radar, one is searching radar, for navigation. one is for the targeting, control weapon radar. this is the fc radar. this time chinese side used this fc radar. it means they showed to the ship they have the intention to attack the japanese ship. so it is very serious and danger. i think the -- there are two ssib scenarios one is the chinese navy just wanted to provoke the ship. one another is the chinese navy recognized the japanese ship's behavior, action was danger, so they wanted to warn the japanese ship. but in both scenario there is a perception gap. i think this perception gap is the most important we have to consider. both japan and china have to resolve the problem. because the -- these kind of perception gap will lead to similar situation even in future. so i think this time the japanese government will open this information, claim to chinese s

: yes, we're getting information from point loma, and the navy base is on lockdown, the point loma area and the scene we've been showing with the police officers outside, marked and unmarked cars and told it had been cleared. a call from someone who watched the description might be at the complex and told that person did not end up being the suspect and also a couple of people they want to talk to there, but they have quote, zero percent confidence that the suspect is there. the good news is there was nobody barricaded and nobody they believe is part of this murder and want to talk to a few folks. and having said that, another piece of information we've got the attempted boat robbery, we know san diego well, where the wallet was found one of the thoroughfares could be taken over to interstate 5 and heads to the location here at the empire. and a lot of information that we have where this story you could write a novel on already. give you the bullet points what you need to know. on sunday there was a double murder. that double murder was of a captain daughter's involved with the case wit
position the bottom of a strategically important chain of islands that could block the chinese navy from the east china sea. they have been a source of daily confrontations on the sea and now in the air between japan and china. you have two new administrations, one in china, one in japan. there is a hardening of positions on both sides. there's the usual diplomatic feelers, but i haven't talked to anyone who takes them marley seriously. and we are -- particularly seriously. and we are one ep3 incident away from potentially a major conflict. do i think it'd be a war? no. on the other hand, the domestic tensions in both countries, i think, mean this would not be very easy to solve. and whoever backs down either before conflict or after conflict is going to lose an enormous amount of credibility and influence in the region. both sides know that, and that's why they are now moving forward to getting much closer to war. the third thing is managing this broader china relationship, and here's where i'll link it back to what dani said and wrap up my comments. this is the long game. i think that
a navy s.e.a.l. sniper was murdered at a texas gun range. you'll hear what his sister has to say about the suspects. stand by. epp;o/ñ0/pt>> we're just getting some new information here into the situation room. new information about the nomination of the former senator, chuck hagel, to be the nation's next secretary of defense. let's go to capitol hill to dana bash. what are you learning? >> reporter: cnn has learned that chuck hagel's confirmation to be the next defense secretary appears to be all but certain. the reason we can report that is by some excellent digging by our producers. what they have found out is they have found at least five republican senators who have said that they would oppose any filibuster to block hagel's nomination. so mathematically what that would mean is even if there would be a filibuster, which is still an if, he would likely have the votes to overcome that and would go on to become the next defense secretary. they talked to a lot of senators, a lot of senators' offices and they came up with five. only two of them are actually going to support hage

"newsroom" starts now. >>> good morning and welcome to "newsro "newsroom." i'm carol costello. thank you for being with us. neither rain, sleet, snow or hail will stop the post office from delivering your letters but the economy and e-mail will. starting in august the post office will no longer deliver letters and other first class mail to your home saturdays. you'll still receive packages. this is just the first of many deep cuts coming to the united states postal service. athena jones joins me. good morning. >> the packaging will continue, that's one area seen growth in recent years. people are now using e-mail to stay in touch, using the internet to pay bills and so the p
between china and japan. it was revealed that the chinese vessel had lot weapons on the japanese navy. i want to hear how much you think an issue this was. >> i was just in that part of the world in the last few months. i had a chance to go to japan and visit with my counterparts in japan and discuss their concerns and then i went on to china to talk with them about their concerns as well. i believe that, especially the secaucus islands and the dispute over that, that territorial dispute, is one that concerns as -- us a great deal. it is the kind of situation where their territorial claims that could ultimately get out of hand and one country or the other could react in a way that could create an even greater crisis. we urge, obviously, both the chinese and the japanese to exercise good judgment. in the pacific, this is a big region. part of our reason to rebalance to the pacific is because we think that, in many ways, our future economic security, our trade relationships, our security relationships will be in that part of the world. and we have great allies in japan and south korea and
and the reserve and i'm working for the navy. good afternoon, again. my question is do you think we're in risk of the same mistake we saw after vietnam in losing the expertise with the potential sequester and the possibility of losing special operations funding and the hard, expertise of our special operators? >> yeah. yeah we are. first, the difn budget is already coming down and needs to come down a lot. the -- defense budget has gotten huge and based upon the nation's finances we have to bring it down. i think the process is already underway. what people talk about defense they talk about we need to spend three or 4% of gdp for defense. i think that's a dumb approach. you need to spend as much foreign defense as you need to defend yourself. it was designed to be something so that sane people would never let it happen. [laughter] we confused the last part. because what happens is now if you sequester in 2013 and you don't make the decision until early spring, they only have the rest of the fiscal year to execute that. they have to take the cut about the last six or seven month of the years.
four tours in iraq. another veteran he was trying to help is now charged with killing retired navy s.e.a.l. chris kyle at a gun range in texas. casey stiegel, with more on that. a lot of talk about ptsd, post-tramatic stress disorder. did the gunman here have that? >> reporter: we simply don't know. it is important to point out that chris kyle had a reputation for helping troops who had come back home and suffered ptsd but we do not know if that is the case with this man. the only thing the pentagon told us about the alleged gunman he was a corporal in the marines and that he was active duty from 2006 to 2010. did tours of duty in iraq and haiti but was most recently listed as reserve. at a weekend news conference authorities here in texas says he was unemployed and navy suffered from a mental illness as a result of his time in the military but no real motive has been given. kyle, his friend, chad littlefield and roth drove to the gun range in kyle's truck on saturday where investigators say ralph shot and killed the two men, stole the truck and drove to his sister's home. told them
forces initiative. a marine sergeant in the reserve and in working for the navy. good afternoon again. my question is, do you think were at risk of the same mistake we saw after vietnam and using the expertise with this potential sequester on the possibility of moving operations funding and the hard expertise of our special operators? >> yeah, we are. first, the defense budget is coming down and it needs to come down a lot. the defense budget has gotten huge and based upon the nations finances, we've got to bring it down, but the process is underway. people sometimes talk about what needs than 3% or 4% of gdp for defense. that's a approach. you need to spend as much on defense is a need to defend yourself, but no more and i think they're working on that. the sequester is completely different. sequestered was designed to be something so unpalatable that sane people would never let it happen. [laughter] we confuse the last part because what happens is that the sequester in 2013 and don't think the decision until early spring, they only have the rest of the fiscal year to execute that code w
on operations for the navy, as they try and operate around the world and in the air force, reducing all critical flying hours for pilots. so the bottom line, less readiness across the board, suzanne. >> we understand military pay raise limit what does that mean for folks in the military? >> what we have learned today is that secretary panetta is going to recommend a 1% pay raise for next year. but that is less than it is supposed to be by all accounts. according to the way they calculate these things, it should have been at least 1.7% we're told, that's what the pay rate was this year. that's about $130 a year difference for some junior enlisted personnel, people are really facing a tough time, they have families to support, they need all the pay they can get. if this all goes into effect, they'll see less in their paycheck, suzanne. >> barbara starr, thank you. >>> this is something we have not seen before in past years. take a look at this. this is a few gay and lesbian couples attending a formal uniformed social function. where is this? this is important. this is at the u.s. military academy
vessel had locked its targeting radar on the japanese navy and i want to hear your opinion how serious the issue is and what kind of position the united states is willing to take? >> well, we've -- i just was in that part of the world within the last few months and had the chance to go to japan and visit with my counterparts in japan. and discuss their concerns. and then went on to china. to talk with them about the concerns as well. i mean, i believe that -- i mean, especially the islands and the disute over that, that territorial dispute, is one that concerns us a great deal. because it's the kind of situation where there are territorial claims that could ultimately get out of hand and one country or the other could react in a way that could create an even greater crisis. and so we urged obviously both the japanese and the chinese to exercise good judgment here and to try to work with each other to try to resolve these issues peacefully. we are, you know, in the pacific, this is a big region, and part of our reason to rebalance the pacific is because we think that in many ways our fu
over a controversial comment about the murder of retired navy seal chris kyle. one of the military's most effective snipers killed over the weekend at a texas gun range. an iraq war vet charged with the shooting now, and after the news broke, former presidential candidate and one time congressman ron paul tweeted quote chris kyle's death seems to confirm that he who lives by the sword dies by the sword. treating ptsd at a fire range doesn't make sense. the tweet set off a chain reaction of criticism on line and all over the place, frankly. former congressman ron paul took to his own facebook page to respond to the outrage. he wrote this, quote, as a veteran i certainly recognize that this weekend's violence and killing of chris kyle were a tragic and sad event. my condolences and prayers go out to mr. kyle's family. unconstitutional and unnecessary wars have endless unintended consequences. a policy of non-violence as christ pretty muched would have prevented this and similar tragedies. one of those still unhappy with the congressman bein, sergeant a meyer. we all watched that cere
. >>> we have the chilling 911 audio from the moment a marine admitted to his sister that he murdered navy seal chris kyle. >> my brother came by here. i wasn't [bleep]. he told me that he's committed a murder. i'm terrified for my life. >> okay. hold on. >> because i don't know if he's going to come back here. >>gretchen: ruth has refused to meet with his attorney or family and remains under suicide watch at a texas jail. military records show he served six months in iraq in 2010 before coming home with post traumatic stress disorder. >>> we're going to talk about monopoly for a minute. one of the iconic games, tokens, getting the pwaotd pwaotd -- boot today. in danger of being voted out, the shoe, iron or wheelbarrow. one will be replaced with a toy robot, helicopter, cat or diamond ring. we will tell you which one at 8 a.m. eastern time. those are your headlines. >>brian: do you remember controversy when it came to enhanced interrogation in the bush administration? these high-value targets we picked up, when we picked up khalid sheikh mohammed and we quickly needed as much information a
to a place -- >> that is not a bad idea. sometimes it is on a navy vessel or sometimes it is back here in the united states. we bring them into a process and we can elicit information from them and put them behind bars. >> is the article iii process an ideal way? isn't there limitations in that process? >> i'm proud of our system of laws here and the article iii process and our track record is strong over the past couple dozen years. so many terrorists have been, in fact, been -- >> i understand. but the first priority is to develop information. but in article iii is not the most conducive to that. >> i disagree with that. >> what about turning over information that will incriminate them? >> it is tailored to the sixes. sometimes an individual will be mandaized. it means that the sfings they give you cannot be used in court. but in fact, the f.b.i. does a great job in eliciting information so they can get information as part of that negotiation with them. they let them know they can languish forever or we can have a dialogue about it. >> just last point. this case that i talked about,
as in the history of the country, the smallest navy since 1915, the smallest farms since 1940. it is about the cia. it is their intelligence gathering capabilities. it is also about public education. it is about non-defense matters. so i am hopeful that we can finally start voting in the senate rather than just complaining about what the house does. to the president, we bear responsibility as republicans for allowing this to happen. lead us to a better solution. if you do not, mr. president, he will go down in history in my view is one of the most irresponsible commanders in chief in the history of the country for what you have done, mr. president, that you allow the finest military in history of the world to deteriorate at a time that we needed it the most. let's not let that happen. >> let me just add or emphasize three quick points. one is, reducing civilians by attrition is a good idea, even at dod. i would remind you that yesterday, the recently departed secretary for policy argued in the washington post that we needed to reduce civilians at dod as a way of improving efficiency within the pen
